In preparation for the beatification of Guadalupe Ortiz de Landazuri, we recently organised a seminar for our friends and co-operators. The theme was ‘Christian Witness in Society: Is it Possible?’ The idea was to reflect on and discuss the life of this ordinary woman, and how she lived both the Christian and human virtues in an extraordinary way.
Guadalupe Ortiz de Landázuri was one of the first women of Opus Dei to come to Mexico. She was only in Mexico for six years, but it gave her enough time to start a student residence in Mexico City, a retreat center in Montefalco, and a school in Culiacán. Guadalupe will be declared blessed on May 18, 2019, in Madrid, Spain.
Donations made on the occasion of Guadalupe's beatification will provide scholarships to help 100 African women carry out scientific research and further their studies.
“Letters to a Saint” offers an English translation of letters written by Guadalupe to Saint Josemaría. The founder of Opus Dei kept these letters among his personal correspondence, and they are now found in the General Archive of the Prelature.
